Event description

Description

The Canadian Cannabis landscape continues to evolve at a tremendously fast pace. On October 17, 2018, Canada became the first major industrial nation to legalize adult-use cannabis. By October 17, 2019 we expect to see the second wave of legalization – with ingestibles and vaping products legal for recreational use.

Building on the success of the inaugural WE Cann™ Conference in Leamington, Ontario in November 2018, TheCannalysts and Grant Thornton are pleased to bring the WE Cann™ event to Edmonton, Alberta on May 8, 2019. While the location may be different, the format and objectives remain the same. WE Cann™ is a B2B conference that seeks to recognize and celebrate the economic growth and development that this burgeoning industry has brought to our ommunities and looks to explore what is to come.

Alberta is on the trajectory to become Canada’s cannabis production capital with 19 licensed producers and 75 retail cannabis outlets – 22 of which are in Edmonton and surrounding areas. WE Cann™ West will address future opportunities and formats Cannabis can take, and what is needed to get there. From agriculture to the development of consumer recreational; health and wellness products and the advanced manufacturing processes, the 2019 WE Cann™ Conference will bring together cannabis industry leaders to discuss opportunities and build new connections.



Your ticket includes:

  • A full day of individual speaker presentations and compelling sessions on cannabis operations, health and wellness & finance
  • Breakfast and lunch
  • Opportunity to connect with over 200 industry leaders
